OBJECTIVES:Several studies have reported symptom relief in gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) patients treated with radiofrequency delivery (Stretta procedure) at the gastro-esophageal junction (GEJ), but the mechanism underlying this improvement is unclear. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that Stretta alters GEJ resistance.METHODS:We conducted a double-blind randomized cross-over study of Stretta and sham treatment. Consecutive GERD patients were included in the… CONTINUE READING
